Update on the future of former Hull FC coach Brett Hodgson

The future of Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield is set to be confirmed on Monday after it has been up in the air recently.

The seven-time Super League Champion and subsequently Super League’s most successful ever skipper has done a brilliant job at Leicester Tigers since leaving his role as Director of Rugby at Leeds in 2021 after three years and helping the club to a Challenge Cup Final win.

As Defence Coach he helped the Tigers to the Premiership which has resulted in him being pursued by England Rugby Union.

This comes after Eddie Jones, who has been open about his desire to coach in rugby league especially with the NRL’s South Sydney Rabbitohs and has been chased by Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves in the past, was relieved of his position and England identifying Leicester Head Coach Steve Borthwick as their main target.

Now though The Telegraph is reporting that both Borthwick and Sinfield will be headed to the England set up after Borthwick pushed hard for Sinfield to join him.

It is reported that the two will be unveiled tomorrow.

But what does this mean for former Hull FC coach Brett Hodgson who recently joined the England coaching staff replacing former Leeds Rhinos coaching candidate Anthony Seibold after he headed to Manly Sea Eagles.

Whilst other England coaches are set to stay on, Sinfield’s role as Defence Coach will leave Hodgson, the current Defence Coach, is in a “precarious position” according to The Telegraph.
